1994 Acura Integra LS 4 Door 1.8L from North America


Dependable, fun to drive car


New battery at approximately 70,000 miles.

Cracked radiator at 90,000 miles.

Oil gasket leak which sprayed oil over engine at 95,000 miles.

Problem with computer that lead to severe loss of engine response, stalling, and rough idling. 100,000 miles.

Power antenna no longer goes up or down, rather makes loud noises when triggered. 95,000 miles.

Brakes seem to need replacing more and more often as car ages.

Severe leak in trunk's weather-stripping. 70,000 miles.

Rusting in rear of car where bumper meets quarter-panel over wheelwell. (This is a common problem, I know.)

Loud rattling of exhaust/heatshield when car at 2,900-3,500 RPM. (Again, this is common in Integras.)

Lately, car seems to be losing responsiveness, and engine has somewhat of a knock to it.

General Comments:

For a 1.8L Four-cylinder sedan, this car could really move when it was running well. The ride is a bit stiff, and the seats could be a little more comfortable.

I've always been impressed with the factory stereo system (cassette player), the bass is deep and rich.

Overall, this car has been the most reliable, and cheap to maintain, car we've owned. Other than the usual tires, brakes, tune-ups, etc. this has given very few problems. If you are ever looking for a good, reliable car, pick up an Acura, you won't be disappointed.

When this one dies I'm getting another one, the problem is this one won't die!


Distributor went bad at 127,000 miles, but I think it was due to my washing/cleaning out the engine/engine bay.

General Comments:

For a 1.8L 4 banger it can go, but the manual GSR or Type-R are much faster.

A little louder with the road noise, but not bothersome.

Lumbar Support!

Looks Amazing.

This car is well worth your money. Hey, make it an LSR, and you'll be faster than a stock GSR


The only thing that was really wrong with the car when I got it, was that the front brake pads were really worn down, with the pin rubbing, so I just replaced them. No other problems yet anyhow.

General Comments:

The short shifter moves great, the car turns on a dime, very sexy body, even more when lowered. I threw on 17 inch Montegi wheels, intake, Apexi N1 exhaust, wires, Skunk 2 coilovers, front & back Mugen strut bars, and this car handles excellent. I just need a GSR head now. Too bad the Type R was not in my price range.

On the comment on making an LSr no such thing it's called a LS/vtec and you can use any heas of a civic vtec or type r.

I would really like to see a picture of your car. I own a 1997 Acura Integra LS 4 door, it is bright orange with a body kit. I'm still working on rims, might have some now. If you would send me a picture I would appreciate it.


Thank you,


1994 Acura Integra GSR 1.8L from North America


You couldn't ask for more from a compact sports car


Excessive wind noise at highway speeds, required new hatch gasket at 25 miles. Repair done under warranty by Dealership.

A/C condenser developed a leak resluting in it's replacement at 100,000 miles.

Radiator rusted out and was replaced at 115,000 miles.

The Ignition relay failed and had to replaced along with the distributer at 140,000 miles.

The Power Antenna has failed twice since the car was bought in 1993 at a rate of one every five years.

The OEM AM/FM Stereo with CD Player has developed problems with CD play back.

General Comments:

My GSR has been a great car. I have followed the maintenance schedule and done oil changes as recommended. I have not had any major mechanical issues. I have driven this car in all conditions and it has always performed to my expectations. I have auto-crossed this car in SCCA events with about averaged results. The car handles well for average around-town commuting and highway travel, but has issues when driven hard on tight auto-cross courses. The car is still fun to drive and I plan to upgrade all components on the vehicle to performance parts.

I believe that is true because of the weight difference. At least I think so because the 92 0-60 is 6.8, 1/4mile is 15.4. The 1993 is supposedly a bit faster; it's doing 15.2 at the 1/4, and 6.5 from 0-60.

The 1994 and 1995 GSR do 7.1 from 0-60, and about a 15.5-15.9, depending on driver, but if you want to go big, the 1994 GSR and up have much more potential.
